You did know it was possible to sign into multiple Slack workspaces at once using one Slack account, right? If not, you aren't the only one. In fact, for those who work for a single employer, this function might not be crucial to you. However, for freelancers who work on multiple projects with multiple clients, it's plain to see why Slack is at the head of its game.

Unlike programs from way-back-when, you don't need five different accounts in order to join five different teams. Additionally, the setup process is incredibly easy within Shift or regular desktop app.
